White Iris

I love the white Iris flower they are so big and beautiful and simple.

It seems they grow so well and each year get bigger and bigger with each year. Iris are easy to take care of and the blooms

last a while if left outside wit disturbing.

You can bring in the flower and put it in a vase, but it will only last a day or so.

There are so many different varieties to choose from and colors. Just pick your favorite and plant it.

To me the Irish is a peaceful flower and last for years to come with just watering and sunlight it thrives to the majestic

flower that it is. The beauty of this flower will give one happiness year after year.

My husband made a Cati garden and added some of these white Iris in it and that was a good idea, because they are so

showy year after year.

In picking out the bulbs just make sure you look at what kind they are in size. There are large sizes and that is what we

bought. Make sure you pick out healthy bulbs that have healthy roots.

You really cannot kill a Iris moving it after a few years in the ground. We have moved ours form the back to the front and

they grow so well. Just give them water and full sun and watch them multiply.

Gardening is our favorite time of year in the spring, when new flowers show their little heads and begin to grow and spread.

Gardening can calm a hectic day and make it into a peaceful day.

We always buy flowers that come back each year and that way no money lost and enjoy them year after year.

Flowers can add beauty to a table, smile to that someone special face, conversation piece.

Neighbors for years have traded flowers as an introduction to someone new in the neighborhood. Lasting friendships are

made with flower swapping.

There are garden clubs that are fun and inviting. These garden clubs are quite informative and people socialize and get to

know different types of flowers and new ways of taking care and growing the flowers. They even teach about the soil to

grow flowers in. Many friendships come from these garden clubs. The nice thing about these garden clubs everyone is on

the same page and have the same hobby gardening. They usually meet once a month and you can find them in your area

by goggle in garden and your town. I find them very interesting and fun.

A couple weeks back we in Texas was still experiencing some warm temperatures in the upper 60's and 70's in December.

My husband went to the mailbox and came back with a huge beautiful white Irish that bloomed.

I could not believe this in December the flower had bloomed. It did not last very long in the vase but it sure was pretty.

Flowers are so popular given to your love one especially Valentines Day.

Just remember to always share flowers and the rewards will come back 10 fold.

HI, what a beautiful flower. Unfortunately I do not have a green thumb although I can grow weeds.

It is really not hard when you can remember to water and full sun. If you can grow weeds you can grow anything lololo.

Heck, anyone can grow a Iris, just stick them in the ground and water when they get dry.

I love seeing beautiful flowers. Alas, I don't have the knack and most of the lovely flowers in my garden seem to have sprung up without any contribution from me.

Bulbs are always good value as they come back year after year usually
